From President’s Desk…….
It was really very encouraging to see such large gathering coming early in the morning to soak in the knowledge which will be dispensed through the course of this conference.
The tone of things to come was already been set by the Pre Conference CME on Diabetes Update series, which we all saw was very successful with more than 350 delegates attending on daily basis for 3 consecutive days.
The high level of presentations made by the eminent speakers during the pre conference generated a lot of interest & I am sure that the galaxy of eminent speakers we have today will be the icing on the cake.
The journey of scientific conference started in 1983 in our branch under the leadership of the, then President, Madame Dr. Gul Malvankar at Hotel Palm Grove.
This has been an annual feature barring few exceptions. Usually the conference is held in our own premises, but this year due to request from many members we decided to have it outside on a grandeur scale.
CME has been the prime activity of our branch and we are the masters in giving scientific feast.
Today the medical fraternity is being subjected to a lot of regulations by the Govt., who is in a process of imposing the draconian “Clinical Establishment Act”. Doctors, all across the board, need to stand united in opposing this act for our own benefit. Our future generation will never excuse us for this predicaments due to our doings todays.
As you all are aware, an event of this magnitude cannot be organized without good team work. I would like to thank all my sincere & dedicated colleagues who helped me in this mammoth task, particularly those who stood by me through thick & thin and for their untiring efforts since last 1 ½ Month.
